Feeling so freakin’ sensitive today!! Anyone else with me today?! // some mornings I wake up ready for what the day brings, tackling everything with brut mentality. Then days like T O D A Y, I have to convince myself at every turn to keep pushing forward. I got this. Y O U G O T T H I S. Let’s tackle this Monday together. 👊 #sensitiveSally #anxietywarrior
Some people just cant handle my level of awesome 🤷♀️
I send love to any of those who send negativity my way. I forgive them.
Wrapped up our first food festival of fall with a fruit kabob and a frozen cheesecake covered in chocolate. Pretty legit Saturday. #EatingForTwo
Side note - stop telling pregnant people that they’re eating for two. 🙄 That’s actually ridiculous and they can make their own decisions, so don’t tell them what to eat or how much to eat. Especially me. 😬#RantComplete
🖤 It’s a blessing & a curse to feel everything so very deeply 🖤
An empaths life... I wouldn’t change a thing though, without these crazy, strong & wild emotions I wouldn’t be the person I am or have the ability to express myself artistically using different creative outlets! My creativity is vital to me living a long, full & happy life.
‘Sensitive’ is a word that generally has negative connotations. If you’re male, being sensitive is seen as a bad thing, you’re ‘soft’ or a ‘Mammy’s boy’. If you’re a female you’re expected to be sensitive to some degree or you’re a ‘cold’ or ‘hard’, too sensitive and you’re incapable of doing your job properly as you’re too emotional. •
Ask yourself why is it a bad thing? Being sensitive shows vulnerability. With vulnerability comes the opportunity to be open and real. It often shows empathy and compassion for not only oneself but others too. •
For as long as I can remember I have always been really sensitive. When I walk into a room I immediately absorb the energy within; Be it good at bad. I have an innate ability to feel what others feel, to put myself in their shoes. I’m hugely empathetic, or empathic. Both of these terms are interchangeable, with empathic first used in 1909, and empathetic in 1932, both mean the same thing. They are not the same as sympathetic. Sympathetic is the ability to show concern, and move on. Empathetic is to show concern and the ability to share feelings to a high degree. It can be exhausting as the mind is constantly turning, thinking, feeling. •
For a long time I thought being sensitive was a bad thing. For a long time I didn’t understand why I picked up the energy in a room. I didn’t understand why it often affected me to the level it did. But now I do. •
I was built to question: to wonder. I’ve a need to understand, and being sensitive helps me to understand. It’s helps me to be empathetic. So, no, I’m not insulted when people call me sensitive. Why? I’m an empathetic badass!

Bless the time-lapse video option because in reality I was flailing! 😂
I just finished my last fitness program and so onto the new. I wanted a bit more of a challenge so I upped my game and choose a less low impact one. Today started with a cardio session with more plyo.....😝
It sure does the job! Out of breath....Profusely sweating....but I always feel like I’m gunna 🤢 with all that jumping around. So I think it’s just not my thang! 🤷♀️ But at least I SHOWED UP, TRIED & FINISHED the dang thing! Thankfully I have a library of over 700 on demand at home workout videos with a multitude of fitness modalities to choose from to better suit my sensitive needs 🙃. #sensitivesally #highlysensitiveperson #sensitivestomach #allthesensitives
Hey guys! 👋🏻 Long post alert 🚨 Bbuuttttt story time!
My name is Khris and I’m not 100% sure what this page is for or what it will become but it’s came to me one day and here it is so if you’re with me, enjoy the ride. I have a story, or a few, as does everyone so let’s start with some basics. I am married to the love of my life, her and I have been together for 11 years. I am an adult by number only. I love to color, write, watch cartoons and I speak my own language. Everything Disney is my favorite, I will one day visit the magical kingdoms. I am a southern country gal experiencing the city life. I run a small online shop where I create and sell vinyl decals and I hope that it continues to grow. My being is made up of its own very special concoction. I am an introvert who excels at public speaking. I am socially awkward yet I can carry a conversation with almost anyone. I guess maybe I fall into the omnivrt category. I am a sensitive Sally who wears her heart on her sleeve. I often struggle with slight separation anxiety, panic attacks and anxiety in general, it doesn’t take much to set it off. I am slightly claustrophobic and about crowded places like the plague. Ie. restaurants on a Friday night, the mall in the evenings, new releases at the movies no matter how bad I want to see it, the grocery store etc. Also, I am a survivor 💪 Something we may get into down the road. I’ve always wanted to speak at schools about this but people and the internet are cruel cruel things and I’m sensitive...remember. I don’t have a lot of friends and the ones I do have I don’t see often. No matter how long I’ve known you, if we schedule a hang sesh I get cold feet like it’s the first day of school and we’re meeting for the first time, cue anxiety, so I avoit it. (Sorry homies...truth is out) I hope this page reaches people living life similar to mine, dealing with similar things and we are able to support each other and continue this journey together. Thanks for reading and getting to know a little more about me. ———————#anxiety #introvert #ambivert #omnivert #sensitivesally #welcometomylife #heresmystory #followmystory #sociallyawkward #selflove #mentalhealthawareness
The most rewarding part of my work is watching people interact with the spaces and installations I’ve created. It’s the most beautiful thing to watch people express themselves in something I consider a self expression. The first person who took their shoes off at @fearlesscon
literally made me cry. #sensitivesally #mywhy
HOT BEVERAGE OF THE MOMENT: Hot Cinnamon Spice from @harneyandsons_se
! “How can we do the cinnamon challenge in a KCup” was the question that was asked when Harney and Sons came up with this tea, probably. It’s the only logical explanation for why they were able to pack about a kilo of cinnamon into this tiny pod. Holy overload! I’m no sensitive Sally when it comes to spice, but mannnn this was overkill. I had it on Thanksgiving, but it took me 2 days to post about because I’ve only recovered now. #hotbeverageofthemoment #hotcinnamonspice #harneyandsons #tea #cinnamonchallenge #sensitivesally #imalive #barely
These boys put it all on the field every game and every practice. So proud of each and every one of them. Special shout out to my boy with TWO Touchdowns and I lost track of how many tackles! #SensitiveSally
playing like he got something to prove #5 #WeWorking
When you’re not having a great day and hubby sends this video... you cry in the lyft lol smh #SensitiveSally
over here!! Side bar: Mommy wasn’t home to do Niya’s hair... 🤦🏾♀️ @billionairecomedy06
FIRST EVER POST!! 🌿Kick-starting my Greenery screenery with none other than one of my favs! .
The biggest damn diva of the house by far...she will happily tell me if she's content or not...usually not! .
Open a window? Nope. Extra light? No way. How about a bit of shade? Hell no. Ok so a drink? Help! I'm drowning.
How about a Greek god feeding you grapes with tranquil rainforest music?! Good? Ok great. I'm happy that you're happy 🤣 🙄🌿
Took a long time and on the brink of survival but now we have found a perfect friendship she is thriving and growing new leaves by the day 😍🌿🌱 .

This poor baby is ALWAYS freaking out about something! Today I’m assuming he feels a storm coming so he spent all morning following me around, hiding in the bathroom for a hour, pacing back n forth until finally jumping on the couch (he is not a couch dog). I figured out that a pillow fort calmed him right down! #SensitiveSally #HateLeavingHim #GermanShepherd
Clearly obsessing over my new hair. 💁🏼Thank you sooo much to everyone that reached out to me after my last post. The amount of support I have surrounding me is incredible... brought me to tears again buttttt good tears this time 😂🤓 #sensitivesally
Bath time stresses this girl out.. I think it’s just our tub at home, and the small space and it takes quite a bit longer at home vs at our wash your own dog station here. Since M was about 7 months old she’s taken a liking to this pink and white blanket I had kicking around the living room.. one day after her bath she went and got it and curled up with it and since then it’s been MJ’s blanket. So after every bath, she curls up with her blanket and a treat and calms down n dries off. No harm, no foul. 💞 #missmj #mjthelab #dogsofinstagram #labradorretriever #sensitivesally
Taking a moment to show some luuurv for this guy. Thx a milz for being the wishbone, backbone and funny bone in all of my nutty, stressful moments 👊🏼
